Malaga, Spain, has a fishy reputation. No, really! This 2800-year-old city likely got named for the salt in which fisherman packed their catches along the area's harbour. But unless you're a cat—and you're probably not because, you know, it's hard to surf the Web with those paws—you probably want a getaway offering more than just seafood. Well, when you book one of Wotif’s Malaga holiday packages, you’ll see everything from historical architecture and a trendy art district to kilometres of beautiful coastline. Oh, and the seafood is divine, in case you were wondering. Sound good? Let’s go!
Things to Do in Malaga
Drop your bags at one of our Malaga hotels and get moving. The Picasso Museum is probably the city's most beloved attraction, and for good reason. With over 200 paintings by the Cubist master (some of them exclusive), art lovers and culture fans will find it a worthwhile stop. Next, check out the Catedral de Málaga, which will make you dizzy with its 40-metre-high ceiling. It also sports an on-site museum.
Want something a little more active? Grab your sun cream and snap a selfie as you bask on La Malagueta Beach or drive south for about an hour to do some rock climbing. The major hotels in Malaga are all near the nightlife, so pick your pleasure! From Thursday to Sunday, dance to the thumping bass while sipping drinks at the clubs near Plaza de la Merced, or seek out a slightly more relaxed scene close to Calle Larios. When hunger finally beckons, make your way to the beach, where dozens of eateries are ready to fill your stomach with the local seafood. Longing for a less nautical option? The port and eastern quay house Indian, Chinese, Mexican and traditional Spanish restaurants.
Getting to & Around Malaga
Malaga Airport (AGP) is right next to the city, meaning that it's a quick bus ride to your Malaga accommodation. Taxis are also available, but they charge somewhat steeper minimum fares; for the best of all worlds, grab one of Wotif’s car hire deals and get around at your own pace!
